• Mercedes closes sales gap with BMW, outsells BMW in November, and has a chance to take the sales lead for 2011

      The race for luxury leader in the USA is getting tighter. November sales had Mercedes coming out on top of BMW. Mercedes is now just 1600 units behind BMW for all of 2011. BMW moved 21,521 units in November which was an increase of 7%. This makes two months in a row that Mercedes has topped BMW despite BMW increasing its sales. If Mercedes had a December to remember (yes, the rhyming was intentional) they can beat out BMW for the year.

        Was an article about this in the WSJ as well. Apparently MBZ had it's best Nov ever. Not bad considering the economy but they have some very attractive finance options which helps to move cars.

        BMW messes with financing too. It's a war.

        They are just duking it out with BMW for volume and trying to move as much as possible. It's a race to the final day but if Mercedes maintains their momentum they can win out AND surpass Lexus as well.
